Friday, 24 January 2020 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

Birth anniversary of Odisha’s two legendary sons of the soil Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and Veer Surendra Sai was observed with much fervour across the State on Thursday.

Netaji’s 123rd birthday was celebrated in grandeur at his birthplace at Odia Bazaar in Cuttack with Governor Prof Ganeshi Lal and several political leaders visiting the place to pay rich tributes to the freedom fighter.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, BJD MLA Soumya Ranjan Patnaik and BJP State president Samir Mohanty visited the Netaji Birthplace Museum and paid floral tribute to a statue of Subhas Bose. A Padayatra was also taken out by residents of the city on the occasion.

The birthday of freedom fighter Surendra Sai was also observed at his native village Khinda in Sambalpur district. Several functions were also organised in the district as well as other parts of the State to mark his birthday.

CM Patnaik and Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan took to Tweeter to pay homage to both freedom fighters.

Pradhan tweeted, “Tributes to the revolutionary freedom fighter and founder of the Indian National Army #NetajiSubhashChandraBose on his birth anniversary! A fearless nationalist and an epitome of patriotism, his exceptional legacy will continue to inspire generations across the nation.”
